Quinoa, Coconut & Tangerine Protein Pancakes
Ahhh, Sunday morning pancakes, I already miss you.

I have to let you in on a little secret: I recently moved home to my parents’ place in Hamilton. I know.? Surprisingly, I’ve been loving it. It’s been great to eat dinner with other people every night, and it’s been nice to have more social time, more space and spend more time with family. Though it’s only temporary, I think we’ve been doing a great job of respecting each other’s space as adults. I know all my fellow millennials graduating school can relate: I’ve been out on my own living in Toronto on and off with roommates for the past six years, and the end of my Masters degree is approaching. Shelling out crazy money for rent in an expensive city while kickstarting my career and trying to pay back student loans is not the smartest. So I made a difficult decision – and it’s turned out to be a great one!

But these pancakes though!?Now that it’s Monday, I should point out that these healthy Quinoa, Coconut & Clementine Pancakes are a delicious sugar- and gluten-free breakfast option for busy mornings on the go, and they are by far one of my new favourite recipes. I’ve seen so much buzz about flour-less protein pancakes and never seriously thought about getting in on the trend until I did some recipe development for a big client recently, and discovered how filling they can be. The bonus with mine? They’re sugar-free, but still sweet and scrumptious thanks to the fresh citrus juices and coconut!

Speaking of recipe development, I have some more exciting news to share with you: I’m finallyyyyy going to start sharing some monthly income reports about my life as a freelance writer, recipe developer and food photographer! ? Though I’ve been blogging for over a year, only recently have I started to generate some real money from the website. I think I’m in a unique situation as a blogger in that I’m going to be graduating with my Masters in Journalism this summer, so I am also able to land freelance writing and photography work thanks to my education and the connections there.

Most of my income currently comes from sponsored content on this website, and using my website as a portfolio piece for future projects that are intended for outside of this blog. I absolutely love reading income reports, but (and I say this with the utmost respect) I think other bloggers sometimes fail to include information about how they are landing jobs, and how their complementary experiences outside of their blogs enable them to freelance or earn a full time wage while working remotely. I hope to start shedding some light on this in hopes of helping and inspiring other freelancers, so keep watch in the next 10 days or so for my first income report – I’m so excited to share it with you!?

Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat/whisk all ingredients together until well blended.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a large griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Add olive oil or butter, waiting until it is completely melted or heated.
  3. With a 1/4 cup measure, scoop pancake batter and pour onto hot surface. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, until bubbles begin to form on the surface. Flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes until pancakes are cooked through. Cook no more than 3-4 pancakes at a time.
  4. Continue until batter is all gone and stack pancakes one on top of another. Enjoy with coconut chips, shredded coconut or maple syrup. Can be eaten plain on the go; keeps up to 5 days in the fridge.

    I picked a great time to start following your blog! ? I mean, first of all, those pancakes looks so sunny and delicious…but second of all, I LOVE income reports from blogs, and I totally agree that some of them could use more information. I haven’t even started monetizing yet – but I’m taking notes for future use. Can’t wait to see how it goes for you!

      Thanks Liz! I hope that my income reports can help you in the monetization process – it can be easy to get started but hard to maintain as you will soon find out but it’s also really rewarding!

    Smart choice to go back to your parents’s place to save some money! We don’t even know where to start in reading an income report (we actually don’t read it) so that would be so helpful! Those pancakes look and sound super yummy, nutritious, juicy and flavorful! Beautful shots too!

      Thanks Nicoletta! I find alot of other income reports focus so much on traffic and while they are really beneficial, there are so many ways you can monetize your site and make good money even if you don’t have 100,000 people coming to it every month. I would love for you to follow along as you have time – could be a really great conversation starter among us Canadian food bloggers 🙂 Thanks so much for your kind words, I’ve really enjoyed following along with your blog as well!

    I moved back in with my parents after university too – I had to do an unpaid internship for a year after school, so there was no way I could make it on my own! My internship was actually in Hamilton and I grew to really love the city. It has such a great food scene there now!!

      Wow Chelsea, it’s a small world isn’t it? It’s so tough when you first graduate but I’m kind of happy to be home. It makes you feel less alone when navigating a difficult job market! The photos on your blog are beautiful by the way, I think I’m following you on Bloglovin!
